A young lad is desperate to find a living in a metro city. Atlast, he buys a vintage car to drive it as a taxi. He finds job fun and satisfying until the car begins to act on it's own. Vijay's quest to find the reason and to solve the mystery is the story.
Watching Taxiwala reminded me of the thought experiment- Sexy lamp test. How female character is relevant in the plot and the story. If we can replace female character with a sexy lamp, will the story get affected?
I think that Taxiwala movie would fail the Sexy Lamp test. Priya Jawalkar could be easily replaced with a sexy lamp and still the story would not get affected.
